Corrosion protection specialist Cortec Corporation has announced that it will be producing custom-made CorrTainer boxes at its manufacturing facility in Wisconsin, in the US. These boxes incorporate Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors (VpCIs) directly into the cardboard walls for automatic corrosion protection of the metal parts placed and sealed inside. The company can supply the corrosion protection boxes in any volumes needed.

CorrTainer 03CorrTainer is a practical and convenient packaging option for shipping metal parts. VpCI molecules coated on the corrugated cardboard evaporate and diffuse throughout the enclosed box, forming a protective layer on metal parts packaged inside. The molecular layer protects the metal surface from interacting with corrosive elements such as moisture and oxygen that may be present during shipping and storage. Multi-metal products can simply be placed inside the box for protection.

CorrTainer is ideal for shipping single-use packs of spare parts such as automotive brakes, clutches, or similar equipment. The product eliminates the need for inserting internal packaging such as polyethylene bags or paper wraps. CorrTainer has proven highly effective at preserving multi-packs of small items such as bearings, tools, bolts, and similar items, according to Cortec. For added convenience, these parts can continue to receive corrosion protection if left sealed in the CorrTainer and placed on a shelf after shipping.

CorrTainer also works well in bulk or large dimension boxes when used with VpCI interleaving materials for export and storage of components. The can range from rough castings to high-end multi-metal telecommunications equipment. In this type of situation, VpCI interleaving materials can be used in combination with a box/crate liner of VpCI impregnated plastic. Using CorrTainer eliminates the need for the box/crate liner because the entire package is enclosed in VpCI protection.

CorrTainer is non-toxic and safe to use. It does not contain nitrites, phosphates, silicates, or banned or restricted substances per RoHS and similar regulations. After use, the CorrTainer box is fully recyclable and repulpable.

The product was initially produced by Cortec as packing boxes for shipping VpCI products to its customers. With the installation of a state-of-the-art box making machine that allows Cortec to make any quantity of boxes in-house on demand, the CorrTainer boxes can be custom-designed to meet exact size requirements.
